CAS Christmas Challenge Mid Month Reminder

Hi Everyone it's time for CAS Christmas mid month reminder cards by our Guest Designer Jane (Onions and Paper) and the Design team. Our theme this month is Snowflake, so if you have any dies or stamps pull them out and come play along with us.

I have a super QCAS card for you today. I stamped my snowflake ball on white card stock in Versamark and white embossing powder. I then blended Distress inks over the image.
I used a postage stamp die for my image and popped it up on foam. I'll be making a few more of these in different colours to top up my stash of Christmas cards.

Here's a close up of the white embossed snowflake ornament.

I hope we have inspired you to come and play along with us at CAS Christmas.

CAS Christmas Card Challenge Snowflake

Hi Everyone, it's time for CAS Christmas card challenge and this month we want to see your snowflake cards. Our Guest designer is Jane (Onions and Paper) and the design team have lots of snowflake some beauties to  share.

Please remember to follow the challenge rules to be eligible to be chosen as  challenge winner or outstanding design.

Onto my card 😏
While at Loll's with Susan recently on a crafting/doggy get together we played with some pearl alcohol inks and and air can. We were trying to make flowers but that's not as easy as it looks.
I used glossy black card stock and poured my drop of pearl blue AI, by the time I got the can out to spread the ink I just ended up with streaks of pearly ink. I added some alcohol and let it flow around the card. It reminded me of  Northern lights, so I added some white heat embossed snowflakes.

 I LOVE the background an will be making a couple more, it's so dramatic and great for a masculine card.
Here's the close up of the Alcohol ink.

Stamps: Stampit Australia (Crafters Companion)
Paper: Mirror card (black) 110lb White
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Pearl Alcohol inks, can air, White embossing powder.

Featured Designer at CAS Watercolour

Please join us in celebrating Darnell's Birthday!!
One more part to this special event.
The team has made special cards for Darnell's birthday,
along with our Guest Designer Leslie,
and several Featured Designers (friends from the retreat).

During our retreat, Darnell (Dolly to us) was up early one morning
and decided she wanted some frozen blueberries.
Some how she spilled almost the whole, Costco-sized bag of
blueberries all over the floor.

Bonnie snapped these pictures.
See the swipe of blueberries on the right photo??  Dolly couldn't find a broom so she grabbed
a large piece of card stock to pick up the berries.  As they thawed, the blueberry juice
"smooshed" on the cardstock in a lovely design that looked perfect for card making.

Well, without Dolly knowing, we kept that piece of blueberry smoosh and cut it up.
Each Designer has used one piece in making Dolly's birthday cards. :)
Here's my swatch
And this is my card for Dolly, I have some pretty rose buds in my bouquet for her
